The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

Globalization and IT: Exclusive CIO Survey

It's official: Today's CIOs are global. Explore the details of Smart Enterprise's international survey of IT leaders. 

By Bob Violino, Smart Enterprise

Today's CIOs need to think globally—and act globally. Exclusive new research by Smart Enterprise shows just how globalized business has become, and the huge impact it has had on CIOs and their IT operations. In fact, globalization affects nearly every facet of IT and the CIO's role in the organization. What's more, at a time when the sluggish U.S. economy is straining many IT projects, globalization provides CIOs with a new opportunity to invest in technology that can help their organizations expand into new markets. 

While most enterprises already do business internationally, what's new is the central role IT now plays. CIOs support international expansion efforts, and they are expected to help their organizations succeed in today's global marketplace. 

Indeed, more than 60 percent of IT executives in the U.S. work for organizations that serve customers outside the country, according to the Smart Enterprise "2008 Globalization & IT" survey. Nearly the same percentage of U.S. respondents have business operations or offices outside the U.S. Half have non-U.S. product suppliers, and more than 40 percent work with international third-party technology service providers or shared services. In fact, just one-quarter of the 350 executives worldwide surveyed by Smart Enterprise work for organizations that operate only in the U.S. (For more on the survey methodology, see "How the Globalization & IT Survey Was Conducted") 

Other key findings of the Smart Enterprise "2008 Globalization & IT" survey: 

  • Globalization has led CIOs to increase spending in areas that include security, IT infrastructure, network infrastructure and compliance. For example, more than 40 percent of the survey respondents say globalization has driven them to spend more on IT infrastructure this year.
  • Globalization affects the way IT executives address several key issues, including planning, collaboration, leadership and compliance. For example, when it comes to leadership, globalization affects the way over 65 percent of IT executives manage up, and how 75 percent handle relationships with partners and suppliers.
  • The leading driver of accelerated IT projects is globalization. In fact, among respondents who are accelerating major projects, nearly 70 percent attribute the acceleration to globalization.
  • To support global efforts, organizations rely on a variety of technology solutions. These include network and end-point security, online collaboration, teleconferencing, and network and storage consolidation and virtualization.
  • To help support global issues, technology leaders believe they must enhance a number of their own professional skills, including their understanding of business issues, leadership skills and technical skills.
